When did your preemie start walking and crawling?

[deleted account] ( 1 mom has responded )

Hi I'm 22 years old, as of today, and the mother of an 11 1/2 month old baby. His name is Rowan, he was born June 12, 2013 at 27 1/2 weeks weighing 1lb 15 oz. Today he weighs 21lbs and I'm wondering when he might start walking. I know it won't be for awhile but so many people tell me that he should be at least crawling because he doesn't do that yet either. All he wants to do is walk around with someone holding his hands. He gets very mad and frustrated if he is put down but our backs get so sore after awhile lol. I don't think he will walk for about another 6 Months but I'm just wondering when your child started to be mobile?

Wow! That's great!

My friend's daughter does the same and she is 1 and 4 months. Don't worry when he's ready he'll do it on his own!

He most likely will skip crawling...many children do!
